#5 @PolyBoysBball Deals @DHHSBasketball Second Loss

Baltimore City non-conference game between 5th ranked Poly Engineers (2-0) and Digital Harbor (2-2) Rams started off with a bang. Engineers’ Demterius Mims scored the first points of the contest with a well designed back door alley-oop slam. Unfortunately, it was all down hill for the Rams after the jam. Mims went on to score 19 of his game high 21 points in the first half. Digital Harbor struggled most of the night breaking Poly’s full court press. The Engineers used the pressure defense to open up an early 32-8 lead in the first quarter. Rams received a small spark once junior forward Markus Hocker enter the game after being bench the first quarter. 

Second half, Poly picked up where they left off continuing to pressure Digital Harbor and converting turnovers into easy baskets. Engineers guard Cleveland Horton poured in 9 of his 10 points in the third quarter to add to a 47-15 Rams deficit. Digital Harbor was never able to right the ship after the opening tip in front of a packed home gymnasium. Senior forward Donald Green had a solid performance leading the Rams in scoring with 14 points. The loss is Digital Harbor’s second of the season after pulling off an upset of defending 2A state champions Patterson. 

Poly will turnaround and host #3 ranked Perry Hall tomorrow. Last year the Gators embarrassed the Engineers at home with a 83-60 victory. Digital Harbor will be back in conference action on Friday against Friendship Academy.
